Vance has a Storytellers program led by our community support coordinator, Maggie Laws. It is similar in nature to the Ted Talks series, which has thousands of minute videos on a variety of ideas.

This year Maggie inspired me to tell my story, "Sink or Swim. Luckily, the story does not involve injuries or a loss of life, but it did result in a dreaded Article I do not wear it as a badge of honor.

Others may have gone through your unique situation, and the shame of the experience may still negatively affect them today. Hearing your story may give them the very "pick me up" they need, reassuring them they are not alone and mistakes, however unique, are normal and survivable.
Accept it, own it, and learn from it. Perhaps a better quote, one that has inspired me is, "the fires of adversity temper the steel of a man.
